    Re: Apartments

    There are a lot of lofts downtown, but probably pricey.

    I'll be glad to search for you a bit... if you'd like me to, please pm me.

    If it is the upper part of Marshall, it's an area away from the night life, but within walking distance of Burnet Woods and Gaslight. Anything between Probasco and Riddle is the high part of the hill, which is closer to Clifton Ave. And there is a little park tucked on the hillside about half way up, just past Devotie.
    There is a pretty good variety of condos and apartments along that street, it basically winds through valley up to Riddle Road. It is a convenient street, because you can get down the hill to Central Parkway and into downtown in about ten minutes.

    As for the neighborhood, Marshall is all residential, older houses divided into apartments and a few larger complexes. No bars, stores or anything. The neighborhood was pretty quiet when I owned a house up on Riddle. It was a safe neighborhood when I lived there, but I am only familiar with the part up on the top of the hill. Down towards McMicken may be a little dicier. I loved living on Riddle.

    When I was single I lived over in Kentucky. I spent a couple years in Fort Thomas, a year in Erlanger, and a few years in Ludlow. Kentucky isn't a bad option if you want to be close to downtown and you don't want to spend an arm and a leg. Also, my wife and I rented up in the Mt. Airy area before we bought our house and we had a 2 bedroom for only $500 a month. There seemed to be a few reasonable places around there.

    Clemson,

    I'm pretty familiar with both Haverford and Cincinnati, and just want to impress upon you that "commute" in the two areas are two different things. 5 mile trips to downtown Cincinnati can sometimes take a mere 10 minutes, depending on where you live. You'll be a lot happier if you live near people your own age, I bet.

    Unless you're physically unable to drive a car, I implore you to buy a car (if you don't have one) and make the commute from at least as far away as Clifton or Mt. Adams on the Ohio side, or Covington/Newport on the Kentucky side. It's not like life on the main line around Philly.

    Basically, you don't have to live in the suburbs, but I wouldn't live downtown.

    Happy to answer questions in PM.

The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008
